rate the taxing unit used to determine property taxes last year. This year’s
effective tax rate would impose the same total taxes as last year if you com-
pare properties taxed in both years. This year’s rollback tax rate is the high-
est tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers can start tax rollback pro-
cedures. In each case these rates are found by dividing the total amount of
taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable property) with adjustments as
required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.
